Trust in the LORD

Kindred,


The future will become after the remains of the day.  


No prognosticator, no matter how good, can predict what is never there.   


Unknown as it may be, the future begins and builds upon what we do today.  


The greatest threats to the future are the failures of today. 


Too many people today, fail to obey the commandments by the Lord to love and love thy neighbor as self in fellowship greatly.   


And in fear of the unknown, turn to hate and superiority as a means to control their insecurities, instead of trusting in the Lord and braving the truth.  


Just as love is love, so is fear, fear.  


Recognizing the truth of where we are and identifying who we are, are keys to moving forward either in love or fear.  


Existential threats exist because, at times, we are our own worst enemy.  


Oftentimes, when we give in to our worst inclinations is due to our lack of trust in leaders that cannot give us a just and perfect world free from fear.  


Life's problems, trials and tribulations, can become difficult to bear and we cannot see a way out or imagine a better way.  


Unfortunately, some turn to solutions that are not solutions, but false promises in false idols and grandiose power trips in hate.  


Feeling powerful is not the same as feeling confident and self assured in the ability to first understand the problems of today and deal.  


Understanding and finding the way out of problems today in peace and prosperity are the keys to a better world tomorrow.  


We cannot hope to understand or find anything without first trusting the Lord.


"Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge the Lord, And the Lord will direct your paths." 


                                Proverbs 3:5-6 



  “Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.”        ...
